Episode 515, originally airing on January 10, 2014 at 9PM EST is the first NEW Shark Tank episode for season 5 in the new year. In a season with 28 episodes, episode 515 puts Shark Tank fans less than half-way through the season and features 4 new entrepreneurs seeking a partnership with the wealthy Shark investors.
Entrepreneur CJ Isakow introduces his webcam blocker, called Eyebloc, hoping the Sharks see the need for blocking hackers taking unwanted photos through webcams on tablets and desktops. He created Eyebloc when he began hearing horror stories about people (including Miss Teen USA) being spied on through their webcams. Dr. Jim Lewis has a prescription for repairing holes in drywall quickly and easily called Wall Rx. The forensic pathologist and former DNA consultant to NBC during the O.J. Simpson murder trial hopes the Sharks will like his “cure” and invest. Former Green Bay Packer and certified personal trainer Thomas Hill pitches Bounce Boot Camp, a mobile kids fitness program that takes the inflatable rental business to a whole new level. Also, Julie and Brian Whiteman pitch Groovebook, a subscription service app that sends a printed photo book of all your smart phone pictures to you on a monthly basis.
Follow up segments featuring past Shark Tank success stories are a regular feature on Shark Tank. Episode 515 updates fans on Neil Cameron, Dennis Iannotti, and Peter Ferreira of Nuts n More, the fortified nut butter business that scored a deal with Mark and Robert in episode 420 of season 4.
There are 28 Shark Tank Episodes for Season 5. This season features two new guest Sharks and a host of other surprises. Casting is currently closed, but it never hurts to get a head start on season six! If you would like to appear on the show, check out our Auditions and Casting information.
Episode 515 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 515 entrepreneurs will make their best pitch to the panel of five Shark investors who will use their own money if they choose to invest. The Shark Investors negotiate on the spot without any previous information, which differs from typical negotiations between venture capital investors and entrepreneurial start-ups.
Companies pitching the Shark Investors must go through a rigorous due diligence process before an on-air deal is completed. Shark Tank Blog follow ups help you keep track of the companies that end up successful and the ones that don't complete their deal.
